Newcastle United fans react on Twitter to Jack Colback performance v Everton

St James Park Two

The midfielder bagged his first goal for Newcastle United today.

Newcastle may have cut it fine toward the end, but they put in an excellent performance to defeat Everton 3-2 a St James Park.

Both teams went into the game on a run of poor form and needed the win. Thanks to the performance, among others, of Jack Colback, Newcastle did just that.

The summer signing from Sunderland would have been hurt more than any of the other players by a recent defeat to The Black Cats and the thumping defeat by Manchester United had not helped improve morale.

But Colback was superb in the fixture this evening. His excellent performance also saw him score his first goal for the club since his summer move.

Throughout the game he outclassed the likes of Gareth Barry and James McCarthy, running beyond the front-men and holding back in midfield.

Add to that his exquisite delivery from set-pieces and it was no wonder Newcastle fans love calling him the Ginger Pirlo.

Here is some of the reaction from Twitter to Colback's performance...
